Website Picks of the Week

PointlessCorp.com - This week's cool websites has to include Pointless Corp website.  They are not a corporation, and, the "stuff" they make is not pointless.  But as the company's name suggests, they are a quirky group, thinking outside the box, and making it living on simple ideas that they toss around, kick into action, and see what happens.  Scroll to bottom of home page to see links to some of their "pointless" ideas in action.

SmartWebby.com - A great site to learn the basics of web design.  Includes tutorials, some great examples, and helpful tips on everything from Dreamweaver to CSS to Photoshop.  I like this website because they offer full-on web design, but they also freely share their knowledge for those who want to do it on their own.  Thanks, guys!

SCORE Blog - Offers great tips for business, but their article on ramping up your website for holiday business is down-to-earth, and offers five great tips for every website owner looking to increase holiday sales.

Mables Lables on Facebook - A smart - really smart business owner showing the rest of us how to use Facebook.  According to Inc.com, "Mabel Label's, based in Hamilton, Ontario, makes sticky labels customized with a child's name, color, and choice of icon. Tricia Mumby, one of the company's co-founders, says that Facebook has been a terrific way to develop new ideas by tapping user suggestions. Mabel's Labels, which has nearly 20,000 Facebook fans, also announces any specials or new products through the company's Facebook page. According to Mumby, Facebook is the third largest referring website, just below direct visits and Google, and 11 percent of the site's total traffic comes from Facebook, while two percent of sales comes from the Facebook Fan page.
